Resource Summary

Women’s centres are demonstrably the most effective way to support women in contact with the criminal justice system to remove themselves from harmful situations and cycles of offending by accessing gender-responsive services, in a women-only space, delivered with a trauma-informed approach that recognises how trauma and abuse impact on women’s lives.
